It looked like a Group B car yet came from slightly more humble origins: a castoff Subaru Justy body sitting atop a Mustang Cobra chassis.

Condition of the four-cam V8 was described as tired–really tired. The radiator lived all the way in the back. 

The Circuit Motorsports crew stitched it all together, tossing in the box flares for good measure, and their Justang made a few appearances before taking top honors at the $2000 Challenge just five years ago.

Bonus: one more data point that those Martini colors look good on anything.

Digging through the build books at the Challenge I came across this one. I hope someone grabbed it.
